Medication Safety Video

A short video (3 - 5 min, depending on language) about safe use of medications. Taken from a longer video created for Harborview Medical Center in Seattle by Colleen Osterhaus, RN, MPH, this segment illustrates five important points patients need to know about safe medication use: 1) do not share medications; 2) use one pharmacy; 3) keep medications in their original containers; 4) tell primary care provider what medications are and are not taken; and 5) tell about traditional or herbal medications that are being used.

Below are the videos beginning with English, but also in Amharic, Khmer, Somali, Spanish and Vietnamese
